Seems as though it was a push to get all these wheels out of your warehouse, so you could discontinue them. I hope that is not the case, but that is what it looks like.
We apologize if it appears that way but this is not the case. The plans for the MB72 to be discontinued happened very quickly. Our inventory levels dropped much quicker than expected as well and this was without us trying to push them out.

Well that is good to hear. It seems a shame to discontinue such a popular wheel. I am glad they were still available when I ordered my matching spare wheel.

I hope to never need another, but if I were to damage one in the future, how would I get a replacement?

I guess I could always use my spare, and buy a Level 8 wheel to hang off the back.................if they are not discontinued too by then.

Our stock is completely out. If you need/ want a spare I'd recommend watching the classifieds section to see if you can grab a used one cheap. You could also purchase a level 8 wheel as you suggested, as long as they are the same width and offset they'll fit the same.

The 15x8 Tracker is available for the JK (5-5). We are not stock the -30mm offset however which is why the link is not working but we can still order them in. We specifically asked Level 8 to build the Tracker in the 15x8 -19mm offset to replace the MB72.

So if I want some I would need to call and get a price and availability on a special order?... What is the weight difference and BS between the tracker and MB TKOs?

The 15x8 MB TKO and Level 8 Tracker both weigh 20lbs.

Just replied to your PM.

Like noted in my last reply, the 15x8 ET-30 Tracker is not discontinued but we are no longer stocking them. They can however still be ordered in directly from the manufacturer

Update for 2014

Are there any updates for the 2014 Discount tire thread? Getting ready to buy rims and want to know what is still available in the 15 inch size.

Waiting to hear if 33-12.5-15 will work on my 2012 Jk Sport with two inches of lift? I bought this and went to the store for the install and told it will not fit now. I bought a set of rims from the Discount Tire thread for this and not not sure what to do. Really annoyed and disappointed and not sure where to turn to next. I was told that if I had stock 16 inch wheels this would work but not with a stock 17 inch wheel, has to do with load range? Just feel very stuck now.
